The Mother Ship

The Mother Ship

Paulo is back visiting England now…

His home turf & roots (well that, along with Italy)…

He hasn’t been home for decades…

We have a globe in the den…….my younger daughter was concerned when I showed her the Atlantic Ocean in-between Florida and England…….

Our Cluttered Den  (and globe)

He said he’s cold…

…..I gave him woolen socks (a Birthday present)…

…..he left his leather coat at home (a Christmas present)…..he took his short jacket instead…

…..his sister said it was a mild winter…

…..mild for someone who’s been living there…….NOT for a thin-skinned, air-conditioned Floridian…….

…..silly man…

He’s going in to London to see a play…….”The Book Of Mormons”…

…..I think it’s funny that an Americanized-Brit has to go to England, back across an ocean, to see a play about on an American-based religion…….(somewhere Joseph Smith is snickering)

Mormon Temple…….Salt  Lake  City,  Utah

…..did you know I come from a little town in Ohio that is home of one of the original Mormon Temples?

…..why yes, I do…

…..it was right across the street from the Dairy Queen…….

Definitely Not Me

…..and as a little girl…….I would sit in our car…….lick my ice cream cone (along with my sticky/drippy hand)…….and stare at the Mormon Temple…….and daydream about why I couldn’t have a second cone…*****Mormon Temple…..Kirtland, Ohio*****

*****Kirtland Temple*****

Paulo knows that he will immediately be tackled by his daughters when he steps off the plane, upon his return…….

…..that would be because of the necessity to frisk him for any & all chocolate that he has promised to bring back home…….

…..Hershey…..I love your kisses…….

…..but, a massive plank of Cadbury’s chocolate is truly a sight for slavering wonder and awe…….

…..sigh…..

…..from a country that makes eensie-weensie bags of shrimp-flavoured (?) crisps (potato chips)…

…..they pull out all stops when it comes to a myriad & massive selection of chocolate confectionary goodness…..

…..I don’t know what happens to the Cadbury’s that is commercially imported over here…….but they do something that defaces it…….

…..Hershey are you involved in this?

…..But a true/authentic shingle of real/home-grown Cadbury’s directly from the homeland…….

…………………………………aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh…………………………………

  1. Cadbury is truly the very best chocolate…..and yes, you have to purchase the authentic stuff in England, not what they sell here.
